The Best Strawberry Shortcake Cake

Simply the BEST Strawberry Shortcake Cake

This gorgeous cake is simply the best Strawberry Shortcake Cake I’ve ever had!

Perfect vanilla cake (a slight update of my super popular vanilla cupcakes) is layered with fresh whipped cream and fresh strawberries, along with a surprising ingredient that adds depth and flavor and takes this recipe over the top!

I generally lean toward chocolate desserts as my desserts of choice… but this light and flavorful cake won me over.

I know this cake will be making an appearance in my house again very soon.  It’s just perfect for spring and summer entertaining!

The BEST Strawberry Shortcake Cake Recipe

The inspiration for this dessert came from a surprising source… a bottle of Sprouts Organic Balsamic Glaze I picked up on a recent grocery trip.

I LOVE balsamic glaze with savory dishes… and summer tomatoes are almost not complete without a drizzle of balsamic… but I’ve never experimented with balsamic vinegar in dessert recipes and wanted to challenge myself a bit.

I am oh so happy I did!

The addition of Sprouts Organic Balsamic Glaze to the fresh strawberries adds a depth and flavor that enhances the entire recipe!

I promise, the strawberries do not taste like vinegar… in fact I shared this cake with several friends and they said it was the best strawberry shortcake they’d ever had!

The addition of Sprouts Organic Balsamic Glaze simply adds one extra little note of flavor that works beautifully with the strawberries!

Don’t just take my word for it… you need to try this recipe for yourself!  =)

I’ll be enjoying this new Sprouts Organic Balsamic Glaze on all kinds of delicious savory recipes, but I’ll be sure to keep it on hand as my little “secret” to the best strawberry shortcake ever!
